Charley says VIDEO! Zornik – Scared Of Yourself (Peter Luts Remix)

May 31, 2010

Above is the video to the Peter Luts Remix of ‘Scared Of Yourself’ by Belgian rockers Zornik. It isn’t lead singer Koen Buyse’s only foray into dance music. He also co-wrote a bunch of tracks on Regi from Milk Inc.’s ‘Registrated‘ album and featured on a single from the same project. As far as ‘Scared Of Yourself’ goes, I do recommend also checking out the original version. The remix, amazing as it sounds, doesn’t do justice to the great video which features Koen in drag.

Peter Luts is the producer behind Lasgo and AnnaGrace. You may remember me posting about his solo single ‘The Rain‘ some time ago.

I’m writing about this because I’ve got something exciting coming up tomorrow and it has, in a way, a connection to this. Well, that and because it’s a very good song and a very good remix.

Be sure to check Charley says POP! again tomorrow!

Charley says WEEK! 2010.20

May 23, 2010

 

I was originally going to post ‘Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi‘ by Celine Dion, but since this blog has already been very Eurovision-y over the last few days I ended up choosing Lolo Ferrari’s debut single ‘Airbag Generation‘. It’s questionable if she was doing any of the vocals, but that didn’t stop her from having a couple of tracks out there. ‘Dance Dance Dance‘ is up on YouTube as well, while ‘Set Me Free’ and a cover of ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ should also exist. The tragic Eurotrash icon sadly passed away in 2000.

Charley says TV! Looking For Pearl

May 22, 2010

Colour me super excited.

Music station JIM has announced that a follow-up for talent show ‘Let’s Go Lasgo’ will be airing this summer!

In 2008 Lasgo producer Peter Luts set out to find a new singer for the early 00’s hit dance project. Two years, three top five hits, one top ten album and a ‘Dancing With The Stars‘ participation later, ‘Let’s Go Lasgo’ winner Jelle Van Dael is one of the hottest celebrities out there and Lasgo is bigger than ever.

In ‘Looking For Pearl’ Peter will be putting together an entirely new act, consisting of one singer and two dancers.

As far as I understand the group will be named Pearl, after main sponsor Tampax’ product line. With also The Saturdays promoting them in the UK, these must be the world’s most music friendly tampons ever.

Except for the vocals, Pearl’s first single is completely ready and good to go. It looks like it might be a proper club banger of ‘Gone‘ proportions. Even with only the instrumental finished the track got signed all over Europe and the US.

Girls between 17 and 24 can apply as of Monday the 24th on www.jim.be. Participants must be free from June 28th till July 12th for the show which will be hosted by popstar and tv host Ellektra.

I can’t wait!

Charley says ARTIST! David Vervoort (Formerly Of Lasgo)

May 16, 2010

I wasn’t really planning on writing another post today, but I was just watching ‘Tomtesterom’ and guess which former Lasgo member was on it?

‘Tomtesterom’ sees host Tom Waes attempting a different challenge each week. He’s tamed wild horses, ran the exhausting Marathon des Sables and this week… he had to become a schlager singer.

Helping him along the way was songwriter David Vervoort, who you may remember as one third of old school Lasgo!

Together with producer Peter Luts he was responsible for dance classics like ‘Something‘. Every once in a while he could even be heard on an album track or two. Most notably, he sang on the album version of ‘Who’s That Girl’, though his vocals got replaced by Dave Beyer’s for the single release.

David had projects on the side as well. For example, back in 2003 he co-wrote the amazing ‘Be With You‘ for the now long forgotten dance singer Tara Lowé. Last year he released a pleasant little tune called ‘I’m Sorry‘ which, despite a couple of celebrity cameos in the video, failed to make an impact on the charts. His biggest solo success came in 2004 when he released ‘B*tch‘ as Dave McCullen. Aided by a video full of OAPs partying at a nightclub, the song became a top 10 smash and even managed to become somewhat of an international hit.

As far as I know David isn’t involved in the current Lasgo reboot. It seems that instead he’s now mainly a schlager songwriter! With the likes of Christoff, Nathalie Tané and schlager queen Laura Lynn recording his songs, David seemed the perfect guy for Tom Waes to turn to for his very own hit single.

Together they came up with the cheesy but catchy ‘Dos Cervezas‘. You can watch the full video here. If you listen carefully you can hear David doing backing vocals. It looks like the song might even go beyond tonight’s show as it’s already at number 2 on the iTunes chart.

Charley says VIDEO! Peter Luts ft. Lien Vervoort – The Rain

April 30, 2010

I love stuff like this. Radio station Q-Music has discovered that the singer on Peter Luts’ ‘The Rain‘ is Lien Vervoort. The name may not immediately ring a bell, but this lady has been on our radar before.

She first stepped into the spotlight as a contestant on the ill-fated talent show ‘Can You Duet‘. She didn’t manage to secure a place in the final, but a couple of months later she was already competing in her next reality show.

‘Let’s Go Lasgo’ saw producer Peter Luts looking for a girl to be the new lead singer of early 00’s hit dance group Lasgo. If I remember correctly Lien walked out of the competition in the end, because she didn’t feel like it was the kind of thing she wanted after all. Current Flemish ‘Dancing With The Stars‘ contestant Jelle Van Dael ended up beating Elke, another ‘Can You Duet’ alum, in the talent search’s final and Lasgo shot back to the top of the charts.

When the time came for Peter to release another solo single on the side he hadn’t forgotten about Lien. She may not be in the video, but Lien’s vocals are an integral of the song’s success. With ‘The Rain‘ entering the top 10 everything has finally fallen into place for everyone. Don’t you love a happy end?
